Hi, Is the 4.5m distance projecting out from the property? If so you will definitely need to apply. If not you will need to first establish if your property still has its permitted development rights intact. These are rights that set out what you're entitled to build without having to apply. You can do this by calling your Council's planning team.
If they are intact for conservatories and extensions then you will next need to establish if your conservatory conforms to the permitted development rules which you can view on the planning portal website.
If you find that you can fit within the rules you will not need to apply but I would advise considering applying for a Lawful Development Certificate before you build. It will cost £75 from your Local Council but it can save all sorts of headaches if you sell in the future or any neighbour disputes happen.
